I was browsing the outlet on the Mothercare website when I saw news about the FREE Expectant Parent Events that are coming up, and they look well worth going to for advice, discounts and freebies!
They are in selected Mothercare stores throughout the UK, and will be held between 24th February and 6th March 2015. At the free event there will be advice in essential baby products and parenting topics from in store experts and guest professionals.
They will be giving out a Gift Bag for all mums-to-be and a 10% discount voucher!
In some stores there will be British Red Cross trainers giving baby and child first aid advice, and it's probably worth going along just for this if you can, as face to face help like this could prove invaluable.
Some of the events will have midwives, health visitors and breast feeding experts in hand to give advice and help with any questions, and there will also be a free maternity bra fitting service in every store.
The parenting topics will include:
- car safety and car seat fitting advice
- nursery furniture, cot mattresses and the latest sleep safety advice
- pushchair and pram choices
- breast pumps and sterilising
- suitable baby toys for the first 12 months
Booking is essential if you want to go to one of these events, as they are likely to prove extremely popular. Personally I would have welcomed the chance to go to an event like this if there was one when I was expecting my first child,as I felt so completely clueless and overwhelmed.
Places are limited, so if you want to go make sure you book a place using the link above.
